What we do

MassBays' work focuses on estuaries in Ipswich Bay, Massachusetts Bay, and Cape Cod Bay, and is driven by our mandate as a National Estuary Program to identify and compile information about conditions and trends in the Bays. This information forms a strong scientific basis for management decisions at the local, regional, and state level, to ultimately improve the health of our estuaries and the livelihood of communities dependent upon them.

We will provide more details soon on efforts under the headings below.
